They have globes behind the lcd screen. For memory they are 5 watt wedged globes possible 3 of them. It's been a while since the last one i did.

My climate control screen s**t itself yesterday,
so I'll have a look again to see if I can replace the globes.

I got this from the Neon Blue Dash Modification thread... I think...
The way you take it out is:
1) Remove the ashtray.
· 2) To the left of the ashtray, there is one screw, remove this screw.
· 3) The radio shroud should swing upwards from the top. Swing the shroud 45 degrees upwards. Remove the Cigarette lighter plug by squeezing the top clip, and pulling on the socket. Also remove the cigarette lighter lamp, by twisting the plug 90 degrees anticlockwise.
· 4) Remove the radio shroud by pulling it towards you. See figure 1.
· 5) Remove the two Philips head screws located above the Radio.
· 6) Remove the 3 Screws located above the instrument panel.
· 7) remove the screw located beneath the Door Unlock Switch
· 8) Remove the Screw located beneath the Fuel Flap Release switch.
· 9) Pull the main Dash Panel away from the Dash. There are three clips located at the top of this panel. and 1 clip located near the door unlock switch. It is normal for this part to require some force.
· 10) Once the clips have disengaged, lift the panel upwards, so as the two tabs located near the Shift console are disengaged.
13) Remove the Main Panel. See figure 2.
· 11) Remove the Climate Control / Heater Assembly. (4 Screws, 2 electrical connectors, Vacuum lines, and Temperature rod.

The bulbs are are connected to the actual assembly, rather than the looms behind the climate control unit.

Hope this helps out,
Cheers,
Russ.

Yeah,
I just replaced the three globes in the climate control unit with white T10 LEDs,
Hopefully it'll look brighter and nicer at night time.

Cheers,
Russ.
